Holiday Park Recommendations Wanted

If you have stayed at a particularly good holiday park,
country pub or other great venue or attraction
we would like to hear about it.

Our club is now seeking recommendations from members of their recommended holiday parks. It may be
one that you have used that has great facilities and helpful, friendly staff. We are particularly interested in
camps that have family friendly pricing.
Over the past three years APCNZ has had a good joint relationship with Kiwi Holiday Parks, and our
members get a discount when using their camps. While we are keen to continue our relationship with the
Kiwi Holiday Parks, we believe in promoting other NZ camps that are recommended by our members, for
the benefit of our members and other campers.
Following suggestions from our members, we are now building a New Zealand wide All Points Camping
Club ‘Recommended Camp Register’ containing some of the countries smaller, privately run and remote
holiday parks. We want to know from members what campgrounds you would “tell a friend” about or use
again. These camps may or may not offer discount to All Points Camping Club members.
The club already currently has a small number of holiday parks that support the club and offer discounts to
our members. Holiday parks recommended by our members will be looked at and approached by Club
Management to see if we can arrange a mutually beneficial partnership, where the club promotes the
holiday park through our national membership, magazine and social media, while in return our club
members may receive a discount when staying. To achieve this we need your help, so send us your top

Wayne Ravelich

Vice President,
All Points Camping Club of NZ.

The 5th AGM of APCNZ is to be held at Sanson Community Hall (Manawatu)
on Saturday 2nd May, 2020.

This will be a free weekend rally for those attending.



Two weeks in Queensland was going to be a warm and welcome relief
after the previous two in a rather cool New Zealand South Island.
Flights and Britz Motorhome booked and paid for, we used Flight
Centre, so easy and sorted (almost). On the morning of departure
while looking at the itinerary I noticed that the LAST collection time
for the motorhome was 2 hours before we arrived in Brisbane. On the
Britz website it suggests that international tourists spend the first
night in a motel and collect the camper the next day, a great idea.

A quick call to Flight Centre had us staying at Novatel with camper
collection in the morning. Great efficient & friendly service at Britz,
paperwork done, shown around the camper and let the holiday begin.
Keyed Gympie in the GPS hit the M1 and North. I had a hankering for
McDonalds Hotcakes and a flat white for breakfast, so we stopped at
one of the many service points along the highways, fuel and food
available at every stop. The 6 berth Mercedes motorhome for just Jo &
I was a little overkill but as we are used to an 8mtr bus we loved the
extra space this provided. The Mercedes is large, very economical, a
pleasure to drive and well equipped. We took the “extra inclusive pack”
that includes deck chairs, outdoor table, linen etc so jump in and go,
also covers the normally $6000 accident insurance cover. Well worth
looking into.

We had come to Brisbane to have a break and catchup with family, I
won’t bore you with that side of the trip. In this part of Queensland, the
roads are good and a little faster than home. 60km to 80km around
town, highways are either 100km or 110km with NO reduced speed
limit when towing so make sure your caravan is in good condition as
you travel at 110km posted speed. We could not believe how many
caravans were on the road, and this time of year is quiet. The GPS unit
comes loaded with the Oz version of Camper-mate that is as good as we
are used to, which in a strange land is very helpful.

We spent the first night in the camper at a “rest area” on the outskirts
of Gympie. These rest areas are free to stay at with toilets, water and
dump stations provided, maximum stay only 20hours. You can stay in
anything from your car to, well anything and not a CSC sticker this side
of the ditch. Being next to the main highway they can be a little noisy
with people coming and going all night but do provide a place to stop,
cook a feed (if you have a cooker) and get some rest at no cost.

We had a chat to the couple parked next to us; I made the silly mistake
of commenting just how many caravans were on the road. I was politely
informed that I had no idea what I was talking about. Apparently, it is the wrong time of year for the REAL
caravan traffic. Like the migratory birds the “Grey Nomads” also head North for the winter, departing the
colder southern states for Northern Queensland and the Territories only to return south in the summer. At
these times the Bruce Highway is solid nose to tail caravans. Regardless of this fact, what we saw particularly
coming from NZ was still rather impressive. The vast range of caravans is understandable when you consider


that Australia has approximately 200 different caravan
manufacturers, Jayco that we at home are familiar with does have the
largest market share of around 50%. The other main thing that stood
out for me is the number of 4x4 wagons with either an off-road
camper trailer behind or a rooftop tent fitted above, nearly every
second wagon was so equipped.

The next morning dawned a cool 5deg but quickly rose to 24deg. We
picked Barry, my stepdad up from his home in town and proceeded
60km South to the markets at Eumundi. If you ever get the chance you
should go as this is the biggest open-air market in OZ with around 600
stallholders, held every Wednesday & Sunday. The baked spuds are to
die for! Then another night at a free rest area before we collect Barry
in the morning for a days fishing on the coast. Typical, Fishing rods at
the ready and it is raining. Off to Rainbow Beach by Fraser Island, the
largest sand island in the world. Met a truck driver taking a load of
SAND to the island by barge in trucks home-built just for the job.
Worth the drive and the main roads over here are great. Another night
at a fee spot then down the coast to Noosa.

We stayed at the Noosa holiday park to recharge us and power, do
laundry and have a shower in the biggest camp shower I have ever
seen. As a Top Park we (club members) get a discount through our Kiwi
Holiday Park Card. Friendly hosts and large clean well-maintained
facilities. Down to Brisbane, inland to Toowoomba to see my half-
brother, his wife & 3 kids. Did I mention the roads are Great? Sunday
dawned fine so the Brisbane Sunday Market was on the agenda.
Camper Mate directed us to a free camp site just South of Brisbane in
Beenleigh. Camp here in anything except a tent for a maximum of three nights.
Toilets and BBQ provided in walking distance to the Beenleigh Shopping Mall.
We arrived around 3pm to plenty of choice for space. It did fill up very quickly
with the now expected vast selection of campers. 28 vehicles here last night
and a third of the campers would have walked across the park to the local
shopping mall for supplies.

The local council provides amenities for campers & the campers come and
spend money in town, a win-win situation. I watched our neighbours put a
rooftop tent up in under 2 minutes from start to finish, I want one for our 4x4.
As we came down the coast on the M1/ A1 I couldn’t help noticing that every
small village beside the highway had at least two caravan suppliers or manufacturers. They are everywhere.
Even the standard type of caravan here is set high, i.e. large ground clearance with a large proportion being
extremely high. Then there is the off-road camper trailer that almost requires a ladder to access. Small and
compact that opens into a vast camping space. Different caravans for different needs depending on
destination. We have only seen two house buses here, a 10m bus and a 7m Coaster.

They like their caravans over here. Queensland, the sunshine state and the home of the Australian RV. With
180,000 registered RVs in the state taking 2.7 million domestic trips and 132,000 international visitors last
year. The largest portion of local RV travellers are the Grey Nomad segment with the 20 to 29 year age group
being the fastest growing, up 14% on the previous year. Industry leaders predict these figures to grow.

It just goes to show that if you provide areas and amenities close to
services, the traveling community will come and will support your
town. There is Motorhome Friendly Signage here as we have at home.
The difference being that here the towns are friendly to motorhomes
by providing infrastructure and services to campers in town, not stuck
on the outskirts as we see so often at home.

Heading down the Pacific Highway to the Gold Coast today for a look
around and will spent two nights at one of the many campgrounds on
the waterfront. Planning on visiting one or two of the larger RV supply
stores to see what is available and get some ideas for our bus. With Phil and Bryan from Tackle Tactics in
Foxton working on the bus while we are away holidaying, we will require some trinkets to make it a bit

We travelled South through Surfers Paradise and across the border into New South Wales. The shopping
here is great with 3 hour free parking at the HUGE malls. It can take the 3 hours just to walk around them.
The car parking is not really suited to larger vehicles, so check it out it before entering the carparks.

We found the Tweed Heads Motor Camp on camper mate. Right on the waters edge with a boat ramp in
the campground and you can fish there in the little bay. Five minutes down the road is Tent World. Check
them out online These guys have everything for camping even things we haven’t
even thought of and the staff know what they are talking about. They did say they would ship to NZ, that
could be dangerous.

Back up to Brisbane to the Jayco Caravan Yard & accessories store. Purchased a few pieces for the bus, may
have contributed to my luggage being overweight on the way home. Dropped the Britz motorhome back &
spent the last night in the Novatel Hotel by the Airport for an early flight Home.

In Summary, we had a marvellous time and got to meet some wonderful people who travel around Australia
in their RVs. The Campgrounds are large, well maintained with helpful friendly staff. The freedom camping
rules in Australia are very different to back here in NZ. The councils provide and maintain facilities and
freedom camping sites. The campers come, use and respect the freedom sites and leave them clean and
tidy while spending money in town. We will do this trip again to visit more places and would recommend
this type of OZ holiday to anyone, solo travellers, couples and families with kids. A great way to travel and
see the country. When booking your camper get the full extra pack, this includes camp furniture, linen etc
and covers your car accident insurance. Check flight arrival and departure times as you don’t want to arrive
in OZ after the rental company has closed or fly home before they open. Get a LYNX card for the toll roads
from the rental company. Watch you mobile roaming internet usage as it can get very expensive. Most of
all, Have a safe fun trip.

19 October.

the city’s first-ever tiny house
conference in October, following a sellout conference in Auckland earlier this year.

Organiser and tiny home owner Sharla May says: “The tiny house scene in New Zealand is gaining
momentum as people choose living tiny over living in houses most people can no longer afford.
“Tiny living is definitely appealing to a wide audience. It’s becoming popular with young people trying to
start out in their first home; people in their 40s fed up with the demands of the rat race; and anyone who
simply wants to live lighter on the planet.
“So we’re really excited to take the conference to Christchurch where you see some of the least affordable
housing in the South Island and the biggest reasons to seek alternatives to the current model of saddling
yourself with decades of debt.” The national conference is the only event of its kind in New Zealand, says
“This is the fourth time we’ve held the conference, with each year getting bigger and better. Previously
held in Auckland, Carterton, and Kapiti, we brought together an eclectic range of speakers. We’ll do the
same again in Christchurch. Some speakers have hands-on building experience. Others are designers and
builders who specialise in tiny house builds while others specialise in homes built that exist off-grid. The
one-day conference also gives attendees time to talk directly to speakers and see a range of tiny houses
and other exhibits on display.
Sharla, who tours New Zealand in her second tiny build, says she’s designed the conference to be
inspirational and educational. “I want people to come away with ideas and inspiration about how they
might bring an idea to life, but to also learn how to do it. Our conference covers everything from budget
saving ideas to working out the best solar heating system for your tiny bathroom.”
“It is exciting to see Kiwis take up tiny house living - we’re part of a global trend that’s thumbing its nose at
today’s housing model. We all know there has to be another more affordable, inspiring way. For some of
us, tiny living is the best viable alternative.”

APCNZ President’s Corner:

Sending out a big hello to all our APCNZ club
members and fellow campers. We can’t wait till

Our club vice president and I recently had the
opportunity to meet with Steve Hanrahan,
convener of Tourism Industry Aotearoa’s
Responsible Camping Forum. This is an
independent forum focused on the tourism
industry. With an estimated 60% of tourism
spending coming from the domestic market we
emphasised the importance of working with and
supporting the NZ travelling public.

Through our partnership with NZ Lifestyle
Camping Ltd (a TIA financial member) we now
have input on the forum. The representation of
NZ campers in this forum has to be good.

In this issue of the NZ Lifestyle camping magazine
we have several highly informative articles that
have been contributed by our members. I hope
you enjoy reading them.

There is a lot of work happening behind the
scenes and several important issues we are
continuing to work through. These issues affect all
campers, and I would ask you to please give us
feedback on how we are doing.

We value our ongoing relationship with the Kiwi Holiday Parks group and many fantastic camp operators
we have worked with over the past 3 years. We recognise the considerable benefits / level of service the
group provides to campers in NZ and we will continue to promote this card and the Kiwi Holiday Parks.
Department of Conservation – Campsite Discount Pass:

– It’s exclusive but not for most NZ campers
After 2 years of lobbying DOC on this issue we have now taken the matter to the office of the ombudsman.
So what’s the big deal?
Lou Sanson, the Director General of Conservation as trustee for NZ’s conservation land has the power to
provide discount campsite passes to organisations. Currently the taxpayer owned passes are only
available to hirers of Tourism Rental Vehicles and members of the NZ Motor Caravan Association.
We have requested access to these or comparable passes on multiple occasions and requested
information on the process and how these exclusive discounts can be substantiated. Our responses from
DOC have failed to provide factual substantiation and we are no further down the track. In addition to DOC
supplying these exclusive passes and promoting the tourism operators and NZMCA on its website
‘commercially sensitive’ management fees are taken by the organisations distributing the exclusive deals.
Effectively the Department of Conservation is supplying taxpayer funded exclusive passes to a small
segment of our population and paying that segment for the benefit. We believe all NZ’ers should be
treated equally and fairly with access to Department of Conservation land and that this is a breach of trust
by both the Minister and Director of Conservation. We acknowledge that DOC has contributed substantial
taxpayer funds to conservation efforts as well as the promotion of tourism initiatives. At the same time
DOC is not respecting the equal rights of all NZ people for fair access to Department of Conservation land.
We are currently reviewing the actions we now need to take to get this issue addressed.


Membership support, events and regional get togethers
It has been great to see members getting together socially over the winter with weekend events or meets
in north Canterbury, Waikato, Manawatu and Whanganui. The club is work hard to build membership
support and interaction with a lot more work still to do. Financial members can access a membership list
via the member only webpages This does not list all members,
only those who have indicated that they wish to be contacted by other members for events etc. Please
make use the list to help build up local contacts. The list is also a great resource for when you are in an
area and needing support or information.
Electrical warrants and gas certification.
We often asked by our members where they can get electrical and gas certification for campervans and
caravans. We are working on developing a national listing for this which will be similar to the listing of self
containment testing officers which can be found at . We will keep you advised as this
Membership Discounts
Two new businesses have been added to our membership discounts. Your APCNZ membership card
provides discounts at 8 major retailers plus at all the suppliers listed on pages 22 and 23 . We our now
proud to add AT LARGE ENERGY and DJ Outdoor Ltd .
Both these companies bring a high level of innovation to our NZ camping market. Gipsy Caravans in Levin,
Caravan Connection in Palmerston (South island) and Lifestyle Motorhomes in Ashburton also offer
fantastic support to our club members and other travellers.


Waikato Balloon Festival

By Lyn Bennett

Ross and I hosted a camp for Balloons
over Waikato. We gained the use of a
paddock at my cousins place not far from
the site of the Night Glow which was
within walking distance.

We set up camp on the Tuesday. For
those that wish to come early and spend
the week in Hamilton. Ross and I hadn’t
quite sorted ourselves out when we got a
phone call from Vicki and Rex trying to
find us as we hadn’t got around to putting
the All points Flag out.

On the Wednesday the ladies of the camp decided that we should
go and have a coffee and cake at the Hamilton Gardens leaving the
men to their own devices. Back at camp in the evening we had
lovely happy hours full of laughter and chats. It was lovely to
meeting many new faces.

On the Friday night Russell Cooper organised a BBQ and he opened
up his shed that had a massive slotcar racing track set up. Everyone
was able to have a go. We all enjoy a spot of car racing. The Kids
enjoyed this so much that the kids didn’t want to stop but after Russell shut it down with a promise of
another go the next day the kids were happy and were up early ready to go back there the next morning.

On the Saturday afternoon we wandered down to the night glow for a hot dog and chips and to find a
space to sit and watch the spectacular display of the balloons lighting and glowing to the music. For those
that needed a ride down we were able to gain access to park at the venue.

Ross and I also would like to thank Russell Cooper for allowing us to
host this event at
his place and
putting a beautiful
BBQ tea. We
enjoyed hosting
this event and
meeting many
campers and are
hoping to get the
same venue for
next year.

Happy or Sad Face will depend entirely on us –

With our faster and everchanging world, the questions arise, will we bury the earth under a pile of plastic?
Don’t even get me started on Archimedes displacement of volume when related to melting polar ice and
sea levels. The real question is, will our Grandkids be able to enjoy the camping experience that we have
had and to a lesser extent still do now?

Being born in the late 50s, I started camping in a pup-tent in the back yard, progressing to a slightly better
tent along with a couple of mates, the Scout bush craft book, an old kerosene cooker and bits to make the
rabbit snares from the aforementioned book. Life skills, pitch tent, make snare, catch, cook & eat dinner.
These days have gone, particularly for town kids, but the skills and friendships made while camping will
never be lost. Everybody that has & can use camping equipment from the basic tent, gas cooker and sleeping

bag through to the fanciest motorhome has what is needed to
survive in a natural disaster that unfortunately are becoming
more common.

The face of camping is changing and has changed over the last
30years. From families camping in tents and caravans in the
forest parks, by the beach or summer breaks spent at their
regular then “affordable” motor camp. The cost of inexpensive
basic camping equipment has come down, about the only
thing that has. If you want good quality equipment or moving
up to a caravan or camper, you will pay. Add the words
motorhome or marine to an item and watch the 0000s add to
the price. You now have the equipment and skills to go
camping, but were can you go? The free places to camp are
getting as rear as the Moa
and the average family can
no longer afford to spend
summer at a motor-camp.

The introduction of the Self
Containment Certificate has opened some areas to free or cheap camping
if you meet the standard for a cert. But the young family or mates doing
the road trip with a tent, by the very definition of the standard can’t be
Certified Self Contained therefore limiting affordable places to camp.
Although tents have got cheaper there are far less places you and your
family can pitch it to enjoy the marshmallows and special family memories.

I am blessed with 3 wonderful grandsons, Reuben Ravelich 4.5yr old,
Zachry Walton 2yr old and Theodore Walton 2 months. Reuben has been
camping with us and loved it, the younger two still have that experience to
come. I wonder how these three will navigate the camping world in 20
years. Will the brothers arrive in an electric camper from Juicy while cousin
Reuben turns up in the latest electric Tesla with a self-inflating cabin? Will


camping have turned into an amusement park ride
where you spend big money to stay in a tent for a
night in a holographic forest by a fake steam listening
to artificial nature sound? Not my idea of how
camping should evolve. Does it matter how they will
be camping in 20 years, as long as they still CAN be

The future of camping for our children and grand
children depends on US. We must ensure that in the
future there are areas available for our descendants

to be able to enjoy the outdoors as we ourselves
currently do. To achieve this, we need to lead by

Be a responsible camper, leave no trace, when you
leave a site leave it better than when you arrived. Be
a respectful camper, respect the camp site, respect
those camped around you and respect the locals,
you are in their back yard and if we upset the locals,
we will lose yet another area. The more we can do to
ease the tension around affordable and free
camping the greater the likely hood that our
Mokopuna will still be camping in 20 years. We also
need to stand up and be counted when Local bodies
plan to change bylaws relating to camping in your
area. As rate payers and voters what we think and
want from our elected officials does matter.

If along with the All Points Camping Club, fellow
members and other related groups, we work
together to ensure a camping future in New Zealand
it will happen. I don’t want to be the last generation
that went camping. Let the future history books
show that WE made a difference, we retained and
progressed camping accessibility for future
generations to enjoy the unspoilt outdoors. Be
responsible, re respectful and be a Happy camper.

Your late model car, Ute or camper uses a fly-by –wire accelerator

Cure the associated delay with an iDRIVE unit. You’ll be glad you did. The iDRIVE remains completely

Introducing our newest Club Supporting Partner

As a retired Electrician I get a little excited with the technical advancements in Solar, batteries & LEDs.
Some say it’s a fetish. This new range of portable solar panels & solar Generators has got me extremely
excited. With folding solar panels & solar generators that are light weight, compact & silent, that can be
carried in a backpack or saddlebags while traveling. These units supply power when camping or when
domestic power is off, either due to a power cut or natural disaster. These guys also do Audio but that’s
another story.
Enough from me, let’s hear from C. P. Moore founder & director of AT LARGE ENERGY .
“AT LARGE ENERGY was created to help people keep their lives going when they are away from power,
to provide an alternative to grid power, and have a reliable back up energy source when the power does go
down. Started by two Kiwis who love camping, tramping and alternative energy solutions. AT LARGE
ENERGY source and robustly test (in New Zealand conditions) the highest quality solar generators, and
portable solar panels on the market.
Solar Generators are similar to petrol/diesel generators; however, they use solar panels instead of
flammable liquid to generate power, and the latest in lithium battery technology to store the suns power.
The AT LARGE ENERGY portable solar panel range are light-weight, flexible solar panels that you can
charge a phone / sat nav directly or charge up with a solar generator. “

Check out the AT LARGE ENERGY website to power your next camping holiday, whether it’s to keep the
camping fridge powered, keep your laptop running so you can stay camping a bit longer. Power your
phones, 12v pumps, lights and other camping devices, or set up to charge your sat phone when on a

With solar energy solutions starting at just $89 and weighing in at just 300 grams AT LARGE ENERGY have
got you covered this camping/tramping season.

Membership to the All Points Camping Club,

Disasters do happen

Stay safe and be prepared and aware when travelling around Aotearoa.

NZ is a beautiful country and a popular destination for overseas tourists. As New Zealanders travelling
around our country, we are aware of the volatile nature of our islands and our breath-taking landscapes.
Earthquakes, storms, floods, scrub fires, tsunamis and volcanic eruptions are all possibilities we could
encounter on our travels.
Recently we made contact with the Ministry of Civil Defence, seeking to develop emergency information
resources for our many thousands of NZ and international travellers. I found out that under the current
structure all Civil Defence programs are managed at a regional level, and that there is no structure
presently in place to set up this kind of resource. That does not help our travelling public and is something
we will work on.
A quick look at the website gives a myriad of options and information but no
guidelines for the huge number of travellers we have.
gives some guidelines for being stuck at home for 3 days including instructions on how to construct a temporary
toilet. Some of this may be relevant to NZ travellers.
Most NZ campers will be able to manage well in an emergency but if you have already been on the road for 2 or
three days your supplies may be running low. Infrastructure and may be down. There will be a higher risk of sickness
and injury. I believe that all NZ travellers, as well as NZ householders, should be aware of what to do when
emergency situations arise. Our travelling public (in particular, international tourists), in coastal areas are at higher
risk if a tsunami should happen. We will continue to look at developing safety support and education packages for
our travellers. If you are interested in helping with this project please contact me.

Would you like a better way to empty your toilet cassette?

DUMPMATE makes the worst

job so much easier and cleaner.

With no more spillage or
splashback, you don’t even see
the flow of waste.

Simply place the DUMPMATE in the sewer pipe and rest the nozzle of your Thetford cassette in the scoop.
This helps take the weight, while you lift the cassette and push the button to empty it. The DUMPMATE
directs the flow and there is no mess at all. Then simply rinse the DUMPMATE, shake it dry, and pop it back
in the bag
Check out our website to see a demonstration video at
Designed and made in New Zealand, from smooth and shiny ABS plastic, the Dump Mate is 450mm tall, with a
diameter of 90mm at the top, graduating to 70mm at the bottom. You can choose your colour, black or teal, and the
bag is supplied.
The price of DUMPMATE is $65, plus shipping of $10 in the South Island, and $15 in the North Island. We can send
up to four DUMPMATEs (to the same address) for the same shipping cost as one, so get together with your friends,
and place an order.
Like and follow our Facebook page, to keep up with us as we travel. If you can buy direct from us, you can save on
the postage. We are based in Blenheim and travel the South Island regularly. We hope to get to the North Island in
the New Year.

NZ Lifestyle Camping Ltd - Self Containment Issuing Authority

NZ Lifestyle Camping’s nationwide network of qualified self-containment testing
officers continues to grow. These include professional businesses and
individuals who believe in fair application of the self containment standard NZS
5465:2001. All testing officers are required to correctly and fairly apply the
standard. NZLC is committed to supporting testing officers and campers,
ensuring that the self containment standard is administered fairly in accordance
with the standard.

- Any person or business may approach our testing officers for a self containment check, advise or
installation. You do not need to be a member of any organisation.

- NZ Lifestyle Camping Ltd believes in and encourages sustainable and responsible camping.
- We believe that every person camping in NZ has a responsibility for our environment and that

certified self containment of campervans and motor caravans is a step towards achieving
sustainable camping.
- We believe that all NZ campers with vehicles that meet the self-containment requirements should
be able to get their vehicle certified. Campers, our friendly and conscientious testing officers will
help you to get your vehicle certified for self-containment.

Have a converted van / campervan? If your vehicle meets the requirements we will certify it.

Pop Top Camper, Slide on or rooftop camper? Each vehicle conversion is considered separately.

There is no vehicle exclusion list under the standard for certified self contained vehicles.
But the vehicle interior must be ‘designed’ and fit for habitation, and you must have sufficient room to adequately
use the toilet inside the vehicle when required or we will not approve it. Many large people movers and small vans
are designed for two people to be able to sleep in them. To be able to be certified for self containment the vehicle
must have cooking facilities and meet the fresh water, waste water and toileting requirements of the NZ standard.

You don’t want to join an organisation just to get self-containment?
You do not have to join an organisation to get self-containment but joining does have benefits.

How much does it cost?
From 1 July 2019 NZ Lifestyle Camping charges $40.00 processing / issue fee. Or join APCNZ with a combined fee for
self-containment and membership benefits of $55.00. The testing officer may / will charge you for their service and
any materials they need to make your vehicle comply.

Where can I get this done and how long will it take?
Check the following list of qualified testing officers or go to the All Points Camping NZ Lifestyle Camping websites.
The self containment check may take around 30 minutes or more depending on what is required. Once the
completed checklist is received by NZLC it usually takes 4 to 5 working days for the final processing and delivery. This
can take longer subject to information requirements, holidays and delivery delays.

Please make contact during normal business hours. Never leave it to the last minute.

If you are interested in becoming a self containment testing officer with NZLC please register on the NZLC
website or contact via [email protected] .
